Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Galveston Beach
Ranked #38 of 51 Hotels in Galveston
Reviewed 24 January 2014

We spent the night before our cruise at the Country Inn & Suites. Very clean and accommodating for all of us!! Close to plenty of restaurants/bars. Our room had a balcony with chairs that overlooked the beach. Awesome! Right across the street from the pier with rides too. Breakfast was good too. My favorite part was the FREE parking for our cruise. Saved me $50.00!! No problems at all. Will stay here again!!

Room Tip: FREE cruise parking!!

We chose this hotel because they offered free parking while on a cruise. The shuttle departure times were limited, and their shuttle fee was an additional $14/ per person, but we decided to still go with it and settled for the latest one.

We then found out our cruise was delayed and passengers were discouraged from going to the port for several hours. We decided to spend the extra time in Galveston but Eva at the check-in counter refused to refund our shuttle, even though we'd JUST purchased it 10 minutes before! NOT very accommodating!

The hotel itself is OK - somewhat dated but clean and comfortable. We had no washcloths in our room, but that was probably just a small oversight. Interesting area, right across the street from the ocean - nice area to walk. They also offer a reasonably good breakfast.

Not bad. Not awesome except for the view of the pleasure pier and sunrise from our balcony. Clean rooms. Comfy beds. No eggs on their hot breakfast and people were coughing in the serving area, so we went to waffle house. Will stay again because it's close to some watering holes and restaurants. Will do for a weekend getaway. Parking was scarce when everyone turned in. Front desk guy was courteous.

The Ritz, it isn't; but other than the name and ritzy amenities, this was second best! Very nice well-appointed lobby with pleasant service at check in. Out room was spotless and it appears the hotel had been renovated from top to bottom. Large bathroom with marble vanity and tub surround, the room, with two queen size beds was a nice size room with flat screen TV and a large dresser with mini fridge and microwave. Our room and balcony faced the Pleasure Pier and the Gulf. Heater warmed up the room quickly and the bed linens were snugly fresh and warm. Coffee pot in room but there was coffee and hot chocolate available downstairs in the breakfast area.

Do not let one persons poor review deter you from staying here. Normally I would read about their experience and think, I don't want to chance it, but take the advice of the others who have had nice stays and consider this charming hotel.

Stayed at the Country Inn for one night. The hotel is as close as you can get to Seawall without actually being on it. My room had a king bed, nice size bathroom and a little balcony (enough for two people to sit comfortably) which had a great unrestricted view of the gulf. The location is excellent as there are a bunch of bars and a convenience store within a couple hundred feet of the hotel. In addition the beach is right across the street and a large pier within a quarter mile. Room was clean and hotel seemed nice.
I'm going to give the couple negatives which are really picky but overall wouldn't stop me from staying or recommending this hotel. The breakfast had a solid selection but at 6:15am, the eggs & potatoes were cold. The indoor pool was too cold to use. The front desk had zero restaurant recommendations and with going at a "non-peak" time - parking was close to full (clearly not a spot for every room)
I paid $65 for the night which was great value. I would stay there again despite the couple negatives.

Room Tip: Ask for room that faces the gulf

I chose this property based on other reviews. I coordinated a cruise itinerary for two couples arriving IAH, departing with Disney Cruises out of Galveston, then returning Galveston and flying out from IAH a day after the cruise. The front desk helped coordinate the arrival transportation, shuttles to and from and back to IAH in Houston. Anna, at the front desk was terrific! Meal comb who checked us in was terrific! Nick the driver was terrific. The property, the room, the breakfast, guest services and the whole experience was perfect. I've joined Carlson Club as a result. Would hope this to happen again any time!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the park-- either direction is fine, the park very attractive at night!
